My son love it!

My son had previously been using an old pass-me-down keyboard and as he got slightly better we decided that it was worth investing in a new keyboard for his birthday. I am very pleased we did - he is over the moon with this. It has more effects to let him play around with and sounds much better than before.
As a parent it is so much more satisfying paying for something like this and watch our son progress rather than a games console... Would recommend!
Good value for money, great for beginners

I bought one as a gift for my nephew, who wanted to learn to play keyboard. I was very pleased with the price and my nephew was pleased with the instrument. It's good for beginners as it's quite straightforward to use and the built-in songs facilitate learning and make it more fun. The reverb effect is also great.
All in all, although it's cheaper than most other keyboards, it's great quality and will provide hours of entertainment and learning opportunities.
Excellent, especially for beginners

If you are a beginner trying to find a keyboard, the choice is mind-blowing. You want plenty of features, plenty of keys, so that you can learn properly, and you want it to be easy to use. This keyboard has got the lot. You can't go wrong; it has features that are fun to use and features that will help you learn. It has the benefit of being manufactured by one of the worlds best instrument companies and doesn’t break the bank. So if you decide the keyboard is not for you and you would prefer the drums, violin, zither or even Xbox 360, you haven't lost too much. In addition, it's portable, so you can store it under the bed or on top of the wardrobe, until you feel the urge to give Elton a run for his money again!
Good for beginners

This piano is cheap and a great way to decide if you want to take the playing the piano further, but if you really want to get better you should try to look for a piano that is touch sensitive.

The YPT220 is not supplied with a power supply, so you will need to order a Yamaha EPA3 adapter for each keyboard (order code 30280); older KPA3 models will also work.
As there is only one headphone socket (large size) you may want to consider ordering headphone splitters: these will allow you to connect two pairs of headphones to each keyboard. The use of a flexible splitter, rather than the solid type, removes some of the strain that two headphone plugs might place upon the keyboard's headphone socket.
